California Jobless Rate Climbs

Layoffs in manufacturing and government has driven September´s jobless rate up to 5.4 percent. California
businesses shed 17,400 jobs.

Because of the way the government gathers the employment statistics, the state figures don´t reflect the job cuts in the
airlines and travel industries that followed the September 11th

terrorist attacks.
